My friend Brittany and I went to this amazing place in the north part of the city. The restaurant called Summer House Santa Monica. It has been beautiful in Chicago so I really thought I was back in LA. I had an amazing burger which equaled an amazing time.
My sister and I were sharing our busy schedules and how our rooms are a hot mess. Well, her room is a mess and my apartment is a mess. We were laughing about how if our spaces were clean we wouldn’t feel like our lives were so out of control. Atmosphere totally matters. That’s why a restaurant with a great vibe or a home that’s put together is so important. ❤
I have been finding this out more and more. Sometimes you have to create better patterns to clean, maybe you need to get rid of a few things or maybe you need to ask a roommate/partner to help a little more. Whatever it is say no to mess and yes to good vibes. What do you do to create restful “good vibe” spaces?
Here are a few other things I have had to say YES to recently…
- Taking the time to make my bed
- Taking a few minutes a day to read
- Taking a few seconds to do the dishes
- Figuring out new ways to organize
- Lots and Lots of plants!!!
I love plants and my dad is going to drop some off soon. He is a landscaper so he was taking pictures of my living room thinking about what kind of plants I would need.
Do you know what else I have had to say yes to?…. Jean bombers and white jean skirts…
My outfit is from Nordstrom Rack. I love the jean bomber because of the stars patterns. My tops is a crop top that is a perfect layering piece for this summer. Below I listed a few great summer crop tops and white high waisted jean skirts that are musts for this summer!
If you are in Chicago and want a great place to eat, I would recommend Summer House Santa Monica.
Huge shout out to my friend Brittany for being my photographer for this post.
